Chicken Stroganoff is a great quick and easy dinner, that is ready in about 30 minutes and is usually a hit with everyone. We eat a lot of chicken as we usually buy it in bulk, so I am always trying to cook it in more creative ways. This meal is a winner, its creamy, hearty, very flavorful and makes delicious leftovers. The thick egg noodles, are fantastic covered in the luxurious and rich mushroom sauce.

How to make the creamiest Chicken Stroganoff Recipe:

  • Use a mix of cream cheese, sour cream and cream of mushroom soup. That will give this dish the most amazing texture!
  • If you want to make the meal lighter, skip the cream cheese and cream of mushroom soup and just add a little light cream and plain whole milk yogurt.
  • For best flavors, cook the chicken until slightly browned, before adding the rest of the ingredients.

What is Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup?

Condensed soup is a canned variety of soup that is prepared with a reduced proportion of water. A liquid, like water or milk is added to the soup when heated up. Condensed soup is used often to add more flavor and creaminess in many recipes.

Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup substitute:

If you can’t find Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, or simply want a homemade version, you can use the below recipe:


  • 4 ounces baby Bella mushrooms, finely diced
  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole or skim milk
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth or veggie broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the butter and melt it.
  2. Add diced mushrooms and cook stirring for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add flour to the mushroom and butter mix and stir well to combine and form a paste.
  4. Whisk in milk slowly until fully combined with no lumps.
  5. Whisk in broth, slowly again, until fully combined.
  6. Stir in garlic, onion powder, thyme and adjust for salt and pepper.
  7. Whisk the mixture until it starts to simmer. Let it simmer on low heat for about 2 minutes. The soup should be smooth and creamy. If its too dense, whisk in a little more milk or broth.
  8. When replacing the Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup use a 1:1 ratio, so if you are using a 10 1/2 ounces can of condensed soup, you will need 1 1/3 cup of the homemade version to replace in recipes.
  9. The homemade soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
